Loyola Marymount University Top Questions

What kind of person should not attend Loyola Marymount University?


The campus maintains a welcoming, warm and friendly atmosphere and it is a Catholic insitiution however we don't discriminate against non-religious students. However, if you don't intend on taking theology or philosophy courses then you shouldn't attend this school.


People who want big schools with alot of school spirit, shouldn't attend this school. The school does not have a football team or on campus frat and sorority houses so the "typical crazy college experience" is not what you are going to get. I personal love that it is nice and calm and it works for me but if you want the college expereice depicted in movies this isn't the school. However the campus is so beautiful that it will feel like you are on a gorgeous movie set. People attend parties off campus here.


A person that is not open to new experiences.


I think that people who are not so serious about their college education and finding a great job in the future should not attend this school because of all the people I have met there, they seem to have a pretty good idea of what they want in their life and their study habits are quite strong.


Someone who is really conservative or close-minded should not attend LMU. Students here are very open with expressing their views and most people are respectful of that. LMU is a liberal arts college and people here feel free to express themselves in the way they dress. If you look around, LMU is very diverse and I love that about LMU. People feel comfortable being themselves and do not feel like they will be judged by their peers. So if a person is really conservative or doesn't like freedom of expression, I wouldn't recommend attending LMU


Someone who really wants a big public university with a ra ra sports team and football. Someone who does not like diversity and is close minded to other ideologies and cultural difference.


I think that a student who is not serious about studying in college should seriously reconsider the decision to attend LMU. Just the same, though, students that are ruthlessly academic should consider the LMU enviroment, and community standards before committing. LMU Lions are not only conscientious, hardworking students but also well rounded, balanced individuals. Studies are taken extremely seriously, but school spirit, athletics, arts, and learning how to live on your own are all part of the greater college experience, which is recognized &embraced at LMU. The students all realize college is simply another preparation period for work and life.


A person should not attend this school if they are just wanting to get by in school and get the degree they are wanting to achieve. The person who wants to develop and challenge the answers that are given to them should attend Loyola Marymount University. Those who are excited about this challenge are great candidates for attending Loyola Marymount University.


This school is diverse enough to include every kind of person and your experience really depends on what you make it. However if you are not friendly, prefer a large school (20,000+), and are overly analytical this school may not be the best choice for you.


Loyola Marymount is perfect for students who are open to all types of religion, sexual orientation, political views, race, socioeconomic status, and type of major; in other words, the heavily conservative and religious student might feel out of place and uncomfortable.
